Urban Decay Apocalypse (DC, $22.00)(90% similar). Bite Beauty Bordeaux (P, $28.00) is lighter, more pigmented, warmer (85% similar). Guerlain Bee (DC, $58.00) is lighter, brighter (85% similar). Chanel L'Impatiente (P, $37.00) is more shimmery (85% similar). MAC Berry Black Friday (LE, $20.00) is lighter (85% similar). MAC Dramatic Encounter (LE, $18.50) is warmer, darker (80% similar).

This was released as a limited edition a fair amount of time again (I’m trying to review some of the “orphans” I have in my folder), but it is still available for purchase. It had semi-sheer coverage that went on unevenly, and the texture seemed to bunch up and look crumbly–there were ragged bits of color that made the finish look bumpy. It wore for three hours and was neither drying nor hydrating.

I really like this one. Because it is as a Cremesheen formula it is a very versatile colour. I apply it over my berry, plum and even pink lip colours to alter and create a deeper look. Great in the winter when brights just don’t seem to work.

What a shame about those bumpy bits! Because otherwise, this is a beautiful color. It could have been a winner if it didn’t have bizarre texture issues. Sadly, my first use of Melted Villian looked not much better before Rachel R give me the kneading the tube info! I am actually wearing it in my updated, and yes “antiqued”, avatar!

Hmm, I like the shade but don’t like the ‘bits’ that collect on the lips – not the most attractive of looks. It’s Cremesheen anyway which spreads on me.

I was so tempted to get this when it came out in the Archie’s Girls collection until I saw how sheer it was in swatches. I usually like Cremesheens but not in vampy colors. This would have been a pretty lipstick if it was a matte or satin with a better formula

I’m not sure if maybe they changed the formula or if maybe I just build mine up a little more than you have in this swatch? But I have the Archie’s Girls packaging of this one, and I love it! It applies on me quite opaque and evenly with a little bit of building but nothing crazy. It doesn’t wear nearly as long as my matte finishes but I don’t expect that from a cremesheen so I’m okay with it! Maybe I just got lucky! Always love and value your reviews, Christine!

I really love the color but that rating just won’t do. I have Givenchy’s Noir and, applied over certain lipsticks, it creates a shade that’s really similar… so I don’t feel like I need this one.

i have this from the Archie’s Girls collection. it became my go-to because i prefer dark lip colours and since it’s sheer it’s a quick application, i don’t have to be precise like with a matte. But honestly I wouldn’t buy it now. it was only worth it with the cute Veronica packaging.
